Candidate grilling by Oak Harbor students televised
June 26, 2012 · Updated 2:30 PM
Two community-oriented video projects by students at Oak Harbor High School are debuting this week on Wildcat TV, seen in the Oak Harbor area on Channel 21.
“Face the Students,” a debate involving eight commissioner candidates from Districts 1 and 2, is on the air twice a day. A student panel from the high school leadership class served as panelists and asked the debate questions. The unedited debates are broken out by district, with each one lasting about one hour. A roundtable discussion by the student panel follows each debate.
The District 1 debate is on the air daily at 12:10 and 6:10 p.m. The District 2 debate will air daily at 2:10 and 8:10 p.m.
Meanwhile, “Thrill the Island,” a zombie video involving the high school’s Show Choir and a cast of community members from all of Whidbey Island, is on the air twice daily at 4 and 10 p.m. “Thrill the Island” is a locally filmed tongue-in-cheek thriller about zombies taking over Whidbey Island, focused around the dance and music of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Wildcat TV is produced by students in the broadcast communications department at Oak Harbor High School. Go to www.wildcattv.org for more information.
